About Me

I'm a Computer Science Student at the University of Iowa (2022 graduate), Software Developer, Full Stack enthusiast, and one of the few surviving COBOL devs. I try to learn something new, and make something ridiculous, every day

Outside of tech, I'm a woodworker, author, and conversationally fluent in Latin.
